…Dead suspect had told police he ‘wanted to kill white people’
Following the spate of incessant killing of Blacks by white cops, some alleged aggrieved blacks have killed five Police officers and injured six in Dallas in an hours-long shootout that ended on Friday when the suspect was eventually killed. The man was confirmed to have died after at least two snipers opened fire on police officers during protests in Dallas, killing five officers and injuring six others. Three suspects are in custody after the snipers fired “ambush style” on the officers, Dallas Police Chief David Brown told reporters.
The dead suspect had told negotiators that he wanted to kill white people, especially white police officers, after a recent spate of US officer-involved shootings of black men, the city’s police chief said. Recall that on Thursday, two black men were killed by White police officers in Louisiana and Minnesota
Snipers shot dead five police officers and wounded seven others in Dallas during a protest against police brutality in the wake of two fatal shootings of black men in other US cities, the city’s mayor said Friday. Two civilians were also shot and wounded in the chaotic fray late Thursday, Mike Rawlings said in interview with US media.
The suspect was killed by an explosive device detonated by police during a tense standoff after Thursday night’s shooting rampage during a protest over the fatal police shootings of two black men this week in Louisiana and Minnesota, Chief Brown said. Police said they were also questioning occupants of a Mercedes they had pulled over after the vehicle sped off down a downtown street with a man who threw a camouflaged bag inside the back of the car.
